Les Quelles (sometimes written Yquel) Mennonite Church was a continuation of the Salm congregation, which was renamed after the death of Elder Nicolas Augsburger (1890) to correspond with the new meeting place in the hamlet of Les Quelles, a short distance south of the hamlet of Salm. The congregation grew weaker, but revived somewhat with the visits of ministers of the Colmar congregation, especially Henri Volkmar, the first Reiseprediger, of the Alsatian Conference. In 1924, one of the families living in near-by Bénaville offered its home as the meeting place, hence the congregation was renamed Bénaville. Actually Salm-Les Quelles-Bénaville was a continuing congregation, and Blanc-Rupt was a schismatic daughter of Salm.
